Whether or not this hybrid will speed things up for you is highly dependent on how well the "Advanced caching algorithms learn user behavior and adapt storage policies to ensure optimal performance for each individual user"  works, e.g. it will speed up 'boot to desktop' times if the tasks required are caused to be permenently resident on the SSD.   Same for Game maps, etc.

So this Dataplex chaching software...is it firmware built into the drive or software that has to be installed on the PC?  And if does have to be installed, is there a Linux version?  The idea of installing additional software for a storage device kinda turns me off.

I really don't like the price on this thing but love the idea.

 

100gb ssd and 1TB hdd should only set you back ~$200 these days. And if one needs replacing can we do that ourselves or have to get a whole new one?

Still waiting on the DIY option like the expresscache thing Diskeeper has been working on before i jump to SSD. Any new on if that is still just for OEMs?

To refer to a piece of hardware as sexy means that you intend to have sex with it.  It's a nice piece of hardware, mind you, but not worthy of sexual molestation.

Megabits are still widely used when selling broadband servies as one example...

It's exciting to see all this technology going ahead (and getting cheaper), I'm still using core 2 duo and 3 x 1TB HDDs.

You people need to go back to school and learn the diff between bits and bytes.

 

Hard drive throughput is always measured in bytes. Internet speeds in bits. No way is an internet connection going to come even close to the throughput level of a hard drive.

 

8 bits per BYTE. duh. That's why your 50mbps internet connection downloads at ~6MB/s

Sorry cold replied to the wrong thread :)

Shouldn't "910Mbps" actually be "910MBps" (capital B for bytes instead of bits)?  The Vertex 3 can do around 550 MBps, which is 4400 Mbps, no?

No. HDD speeds are always measured in magabits (small b).

As far as I know, I don't see a lot of people referring to megabits anymore. So I think its Megabytes.
